However, producers are expected to leave the door open for a return.

A Coronation Street spokesperson said: "Sue will be on screen until early spring 2014 when Gloria will leave Weatherfield for the time being."

An insider added: "Bosses hoped to keep her for longer, but understand she wants to do other things. But they have no intention of killing Gloria off."

Johnston previously said that the long-running soap was "bigger than anything [she] has ever experienced".
